with sthem. >> in a number of cases, particularly with the threats of violence in michigan, i would hope that the governor of michigan would call on the president to ask his allies to behave in a civil and decent matter. there is no justification for people threatening violence. i think one of the state senators in michigan said that there will be blood. what kind of comment is that from an elected official? why is it being tolerated? i think the networks and the new york times and others have a real obligation to cover union violence when it occurs and not hide it. so i think you are raising a good point and it's one that we should be addressing and demanding that the president call on his allies to exercise discipline and civility. >> sean: all right. do you remember during the tea party rallies, you were speaking about the media. the media would search high and low and they would be looking for... something negative that the tea party movement was saying, usually, they were kids on their dad's shoulders and patriotic speeches, singing the pledge of allegiance and leave the place clean
